    Hmmmm, you’re gonna need to provide a few more details.
    Without details, how about going 1” and getting it at Pep Boys?

    So what year and engine does your car have now? What carb does your car have now? What is the size of the metal line that your car has now? Or is it rubber all the way back to the gas tank?

      this is on a 73 318.. i bought The Right Stuff brand steel line in link above to replace my rubber line from the fuel pump to the carb... the hard line will screw right onto my stock fuel pump, but it needs some kind of adapter to screw into side of my edelbrock 1405

      Just get a straight section from the parts store and bend your own.

        If you have a barb fitting that screws directly into the carb body (I have never seen one), then you need to rob the proper fitting off a junk carb.

        I did the same; all steel from pump to carb except a short jumper to the dual-feed on my 750DP. All home bent and flared.

        As others have suggested, consider bending the line yourself. I did that with mine and, although it took a couple of tries, it’s satisfying looking at it every time I open the hood and see it.

        I had a spare 4 bbl carb around that had that correct threaded fitting that I needed. I would think Edelbrock would sell those. Otherwise ebay under carb rebuild kits.

        Just like this:
